These blog posts attempt to provide a practical, helpful orientation to pastoral work in the Kaskaskia River District, Illinois Great Rivers Conference of the United Methodist church for persons beginning their ministry, particularly laypersons supplying smaller churches. Like all free advice, they are intended to begin a conversation, should be prayed over carefully and thoughtfully applied after thinking them through.
